Sarah Davies to compete at the Commonwealth Games

BWL implemented a sanction, determined by an independent Arbitrator, against Sarah Davies after she admitted she had made comments of a discriminatory nature against a fellow athlete. 

The following sanctions were given:
1.    Ms. Davies was issued with a final warning that is to remain live for 12 months;
2.   Ms. Davies was required to apologise in writing to the victim; and
3.   Ms. Davies was required to attend training on equality, diversity, and inclusion and undertake a follow up presentation on the subject to a group of pathway athletes. 

BWL is satisfied that she has completed all elements of her sanction in full and as such, is eligible to re-join the Great Britain and England teams.

As the National Governing Body for weightlifting and para powerlifting, BWL aspires to uphold the highest level of integrity to ensure everyone associated with the organisation is treated fairly, on an equal basis and without any form of discrimination.
